Not Enough Bookshelves: Five Things making Me Happy

Five Things making Me Happy

1) My Kindle! My husband bought it for me as a surprise and it’s just brilliant.

2) Lunch out with other writers, such fun to talk to people who get it.

3)  GeorgeTown Cupcake. Best cupcakes EVER!

4) Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I read this on holiday and I am head over heels in LOVE with it. I want to move to Paris and learn French because of this book! It is swoonsomely romantic.

5) Writing. The WIP is going well (I’m probably jinxing myself here) I finally seem to know these characters and where they are going. Plus I changed the setting to England, so my lovely critique group will not have to weed out all my Briticisms ( who knew there were so many!) this time.

What’s making you happy this Friday?


  1. Love your list!

    I got a Kindle for my birthday and I love it too! It's so wonderful for travelling and waiting in offices for appointments 🙂

  3. Jemi – thanks. Glad you are liking your Kindle too

    Joelle – aw thank you! You're on mine too 🙂


  4. Today's mail made me happy! I got a beautiful edition of an amazing book — The Sky is Everywhere. 🙂


  5. so glad the WIP is going well. I think I'm going to let mine peacefully drift away – it's okay – just not what I want to say, you know?

    yay for anna and the french kiss.

    i'm scared of kindles for some reason, haha 🙂



  6. Oh, I love that you changed your WIP setting to England! I would've been so excited to read it if it was in the U.S., but now I'm SUPER EXCITED to read it! You know how I love all things English. 🙂


  7. Hurrah for writing! *shakes pom poms*
